From good old times

Old times both because my photos here are old, taken 1 January 2009, and also old as nature formation. Well! Partly humans has caused its rough appearance by cutting stones from the primary rock (perhaps better use the word paleozoic?, the base is mainly granite and gneiss), then the nature has made its course of history.

I know very little about this area, and unfortunately I haven’t got any image with a better overview of it. And awkwardly enough, I couldn’t find any good useful image to borrow on the internet either. Not even Wikipedia! There was nothing!
Sometimes you really shouldn’t try to tell about something, just show the images… ūüėČ

Well! There is a stunning view from this peak out over the west sea, Kattegatt, and I’ll give you what I have. Sorry it isn’t more.


My edited ones…

… and some other…

… and this one I finally did find and borrowed. It’s from the local newspaper, Hallands nyheter 25 mars 2009; image¬†Johnny Samuelsson

Bending reality

One of the Photo Exhibitions at Dunkers Kulturhus – “Dunkers Culture” – ¬†I visited today – here I was standing outside the huge wonderful building, locking my bicycle – in the rain…

Read about this particular exhibition HERE…¬†There is an icon for Google translation in the upper right corner.

On a cloudy day, you can’t see forever

But I wonder, how many customers at Ikea who see this point of view?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Treating myself

There was actually a Sunday recently, when it was warm enough to sit outdoors – even in the shadow – and eat something nice for lunch.
Place: a big woody park in the northern part of the city. P√•lsj√∂ skog – “P√•lsj√∂ Forrest”

My course this day: A gluten-free waffle with lunpfish roe and crème fraiche. Water to drink, and coffe. It tasted sooo good!

I got company after a while, since the place was quite crowdy. Two elderly ladies who were really nice to talk to. And since the day also was warm and sunny, it all became very memorable.

Unfortunatly, this last weeks it has been very windy, almost stormy from time to time, and not att all warm. When will the “real” summer arrive! What if it won’t be any “real” summer this year?
Well. at least I won’t sweat like a pig…

Dangerously close

With only 4-5 kilometers (ca 2,5-3 miles) to bike, it’s almost too easy for me to hit the huge mall aera just beyond the city where I live. Well! I live at the right side of it too, I must add. The city itself isn’t exactly small.

Dangeroulsy close because there are an enourmous amount of stores, shops, restaurants, coffe-shops, food-stores – I know you know what I mean – 200 of them under the big roof, and lots more “under their own roof”. The really big stores and companies. AND there is IKEA!

And of course I sometimes buy something. And have coffe. Or something to eat. You know. So I buy more stuff¬† and have more coffees now, than I did before my move back home. Not particularly good for my economy status, but on the other hand – very good to my well-being. And I haven’t¬† exeeded my economical limit. Most of the items I’ve bought is such that I need either for my home or for myself. Like fitting curtains… a proper bed… a new pair of sunglasses… a sun hat… flowers and tools for the garden…

Just the other day I bought myself a carpet for my living room. It costed twice as much as I pay in rent per month. (Came to think of that now) Of course one can live without a mat, or buy a really cheap one, but I fell in love with this already the first time I laid my eyes upon it. And there weren’t many with this particular pattern and colors.

Furthermore, it’s a Persian Tekkeh Kelim, and I’ve wanted a Kelim carpet for many many years. And now, finally,¬† I have one! My inner self feels soooo good! My home has become more cosy, more homey thanks to the carpet.

And isn’t that just the thing! To do things or give yourself things that make you feel good! Whether it’s a carpet or some other times just a cup of coffee.

That is soulmatter!

Strolling around…

… once in a while
again and again
in the time of summer

The green spot

Fell into flow. Made an image – and then another one…

It’s 8 PM and all is well

That is! The switch from domain-blog to a not-domain-blog seems to have gone fine. At least as I can see it from here.

Everything is¬†still in place, and the only thing I don’t know for sure or can see, is if you still can reach me. There’s still the same amount of followers so I hope so. Now when I intend to start take photos again. And add here… in this blog…

Don’t know why I worried, but I didn’t know for sure if…

I have made up my mind

I will remove ordibild.com. The domain, that is. Not the blog itself. So if everything goes the way¬†I want, tomorrow the name of the blog is www.ordibild.wordpress.com¬†(instead of http://www.ordibild.com.) So if you’ve lost me you can find me there.

rainday9aIf everything goes totally wrong, I’ll still be at

So¬†I hope for the best, that¬†everything will still be here tomorrow. All posts, images, pages – you! If the theme changes – that doesn’t matter. I can easily choose any theme I like.¬†I’ll do this sometime today, probably in the evening. I have some tasks¬†I will attend to during¬†daytime.

rainday8aFirst, though, I’ll download an export-file if I loose any content in the process. I think – I¬†hope – the only thing that will change is the name. ¬†But I won’t know for sure until all is done. I guess, if I have to use the export-file to import the contents¬†back, the featured images wont be featured any longer, but I can live with that. I think.

Why am I a bit nervous? After all, if it’s¬†lost. it’s lost! It’s not the end of the world! Is it? No, it isn’t. I know that! But still!

rainday1aI wish WP would provide sufficient informtion about things, about what actually happens when you do this or do that. But no.

As very common, manuals are written by those who know, to adress others who also already know and also understand the things that aren’t¬†written.

But thanks Godess this isn’t Google!


And the images are¬†without any meaning at all…
To the text-content…

There is something on my mind

For four years now, I’ve had this Domain registration on this blog together with a privacy protection. In all 26 USD/year. I don’t want to have that any longer, I don’t want to pay anything at all to WP¬†any longer. Not that 25 USD is the end of the world,¬†but there are other things I rather would spend it on.

The main reason though, that I want to remove this domain upgrade, is that I think WP¬†due to its “enhancements” has made blogging more irritating and time consuming. It’s not easier to move around, the “improved editor” is hopeless, and the app is… okay practical to use for scrolling through the reader…

I shouldn’t complain to much perhaps. Despite the “enhancements” WP¬†still might be the best blogg-host, compared to other options – not ¬†that I know of every option there is. (And as long as I won’t encounter wordpress.org) But I don’t want to pay for this upgrade¬†any longer. It isn’t worth it!¬†The only noticable and¬†visible change is the name. With the domain this blogs name is: http://www.ordibild.com. Without it’s called http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com. So!!!!!!??????

And the privacy protection part? I can’t notice any difference from my other blogs! Maybe due to a strong password which I change now and then, and that the mailadress I have here, only is connected to WP and never use anywhere else?

But how do I do to get rid of it?

I must say! It’s D.I.F.F.I.C.U.L.T to find information. First of all to find any information, second to find a clear concise information about this particular question. After hours of searching, the only thing I found was that I could remove ordibild.com, but nothing says if I still will have http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com? I think so, but can I be sure?¬†Will¬†I still have my posts and my images? Will I still have YOU¬†– my wonderful skillful followers? Or will everything be removed???? All of it????

I have been pondering, should I¬†instead manually delete Words&Pics the ordinary way? Just poofff bang bye and gone forever the entire blog? And instead focus on my other blog where I write more? The blog A new beginning?¬†(Haven’t written much lately, moved to another city, you know, will be back on track)
Or should I just remove “ordibild.com the domain” and hope for the best! Taking a chance all¬†the content still will be there and that none¬†of you will lose me, and therefore I¬†lose you.

Let me have a day or two to reflect on this a bit more. Somehow I’ll remove the domain. And I hope, if lost, we all can find each other again. There are ways!
I’ll be – if possible – at http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com or – if the other occurs – at¬†A new beginning where I in that case will post both¬†images as¬†well as written some-things.

And after all – I’ve just started A New Life! In my original hometown! I’ve already reconnected to¬†some of my old friends AND have met new ones! In less then three weeks. Sometimes it feels funny, awkward, to change what eleven years have done to me, into not the old me, but into a new me. So now I’m picking myself up, dusting myself off, getting myself together, leaving the bad things behind, embrace the learnt lessons- ¬†and start my life again, new and refreshed. In a much better place,

That, I think, is a good match. After all that has happened and to all that now will happen. ūüėÄ
